BADBY Primary School has been celebrating after getting a ‘good’ grade from Ofsted inspectors.

The school, which consists of 125 pupils, was classed in the report as good in overall effectiveness, achievement of pupils and the quality of teaching at the primary school. It had been previously judged good by Ofsted at the last inspection held in 2008.

Headteacher Catriona Eckland said: “We are delighted at getting graded good in all aspects at the school.

“Members of staff and governors have worked hard and we are thrilled that this has been recognised.

“One of the best parts of the report was the inspector recognising the children enjoy their learning and, for me, that is important.”

The report was published earlier this month following an inspection in April.

Mrs Eckland added: “We have had lots of parents who are extremely pleased and it shows this is a good school.”

The report was also full of praise for the school’s pupils

It states: “Pupils achieve well and make good progress in all classes. Pupils’ attitudes are positive and they thoroughly enjoy learning.

“The inspector’s findings support most parents’ and carers’ views that their children make good progress.

“Pupils achieve well. Standards are above average in writing and mathematics and are high in reading.”
